Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-1-X2.02
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

ORBITEC proposes to develop and demonstrate a novel cooling concept called Lattice Regenerative Cooling Methods (LRCM) for future high thrust in-space propulsion systems. Incorporation of ORBITEC's innovative lattice structures in the fabrication of thrust chambers for expander cycle engine systems will maximize the heat transfer into the coola...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-1-X3.03
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

ORBITEC, in collaboration with Lucigen, proposes a rapid genetic detector for spaceflight water systems to enable real-time detection of E. coli with minimal consumables and crew time. The Rapid Coliform Detector (RCD) amplifies the genetic material in a liquid sample to allow near real-time identification of specific genetic sequences, in this ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-X14.02
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

ORBITEC's Non-Thermal Sanitation by Atmospheric Pressure Plasma technology sanitizes fresh fruits and vegetables without the use of consumable chemicals and without significantly raising the temperature of the food, so food taste and quality are not affected. Atmospheric pressure plasma is well known to be highly effective in promoting oxidation...
